Sermon, February 1, 2015 - Authority Vested

Think of it as a cosmic coup d’état. Jesus walks into a synagogue and plants a flag for the Kingdom of God, expels all demonic influence, all legalism, and claims that space for God. This sermon explores the authority of God to define, not only who He is, but also who we are in Him.

Sermon, January 25, 2015 - On Living in the Passenger Seat

Who’s following whom? When Jesus calls His fist disciples, He doesn’t ask if He can tag along with them wherever it is they want to go. Jesus won’t sit in the passenger seat for anyone. He wants the wheel, and tells them plainly, “Follow me.” This message takes an honest look into our spiritual and earthly journeys to discern who’s driving and who’s riding along.

Sermon, January 11, 2015 – Beautiful Groundlessness

Sermon, January 11, 2015 - Beautiful Groundlessness

That’s why I’m convinced that there’s no better picture of the presence of God in our lives than the Baptism of Jesus Christ. He wades into the flowing water of the Jordan River, and He doesn’t stabilize the current. He IS the stability within the water. Through this message, we’ll dive deep into the waters of our own groundless-ness; our own instability, and discover the constancy of Christ, who is our only stability. (Mark 1:9-11)

Sermon, January 4, 2015 - On the Similarity of Stars

Our lives are full of compartments that the world imposes on us. Things that are supposed to make us feel connected to some people and disconnected from others. This sermon takes an in-depth look at God’s astounding work in the lives of some unusual outsiders, and uncovers what the calling of the Magi means for us as our God continually redefines the concept of “similarity.”
